This Life Enrichment Boot Camp totally changed my life. I went from being a woman full of fear to a woman full of love for myself and others.

We attended the Atlanta Bootcamp in February 2012, and all we can say is that a miracle happened for us. Our Bootcamp director and staff were amazing! We firmly believe this was the only place where our marriage could be saved and healed. To have gone in on day one with very little hope, to finishing the last day of Bootcamp happier than we have ever been...is still hard to believe. Now two months later, we're just now accepting the fact that it's not a dream - our prayers were answered. We can never thank Todd, David and the Bootcamp staff enough for what they did for us.

The marriage seminar helped me let go of all my baggage and love myself again. The Marriage Retreat let me let down my walls and see that God was standing there waiting to love me the whole time.

Without a doubt, Bootcamp changed my life. When my father left our family for his "new" family, he left me, my brothers, and our mom with a lot of anger and hatred for him. I can't tell you how many ways that affected my life. My job, my marriage, my friendships, & my faith were all suffering. The Bootcamp made me realize how imporant it is to leave those things behind me and live as a man with a plan for my life. I'll never be the same! Thank you!
Debbie - Winnipeg

Zach - Wylie, TX
The Marriage Boot Camp allowed me to finally forgive myself. I carried pain, guilt, and shame for 17 years! I now see that I AM lovable and I deserve to be loved. I now know my purpose in life. I am a lovable, free, gentle giant that will be a lighthouse to let God's light shine through and help others find victory in God's plan for their lives.
The Boot Camp has brought my marriage back together. My wife and I have pure joy! I am a new husband and a new father. My family is whole!
Mike - Dallas, TX
The marriage seminar gave me courage, hope and helped me drop some of my baggage. I also forgave God for the sorrow and tragedy in my life.
Chris - Dallas, TX
I attended the Marriage Seminar Boot Camp a couple of weeks ago. I will admit when I attended it I didn't believe I could get anything out of it that I hadn't already heard. What my wife and I found out is we don't treat each other very nice and we never saw it.
This is a wonderful opportunity for any married couple wherever they are at in their marriage to build on the relationship and make it better. For marriages that are in trouble the Boot Camp can bring tremendous healing and a chance to save it.
Sandy, Scottsdale, Arizona
Wow. I found my smile again. My joy. So now my husband have rediscovered our happiness and are renewed. A week prior to attending I was in a divorce lawyers office. Now I am confident in our future together. PLEASE trust in this program. If you feel you don't have time for counseling THIS IS FOR YOU. WE SAW MIRACLES ALL AROUND US. It feels great to take a nice deep breath again. :) Thank you to all of our new forbere friends and the most amazing team of counselors I've ever met. You have changed our lives.
Marie - Houston
The Marriage Boot Camp allowed me to work through problems that I felt so hopeless about in my life. It also allowed me to work on past hurts. I learned how to forgive the people that had hurt me the most. I was even able to let go of my anger. I feel as though I have been healed and set free!
Brian - Houston
The Marriage seminar showed me what true forgiveness is. I was able to release my guilt and baggage. I can now open myself to be vulnerable and trusting.

Cindi - Harrisburg, PA
The Marriage Retreat was the most amazing experience of my life!!! I am so sorry that my ex chose not to be a part of this...it would not have saved our marriage, but would have enriched our lives. It did mine and I love be alive and at peace again. May any of you that have doubts...follow you heart, free yourselves and allow our group to sponsor you. God bless!
Garry - Dallas
I wanted to say the boot camp really messed up my life. I can't seem to get anything done anymore around the house. All I want to do is spend time with my wife. I had gotten to the point it was easy for me to ignore her and now all I want to do is spend time with her. Neither one of us is getting much accomplished. We are acting so immature. You'd think we just got married or just fell in love with our new behavior.
Michael -St Paul, MN
I had a lot of anger issues that I need to address as well as a pornography problem. When I came to the Marriage Seminar I did not know what to expect, after having gone through the bootcamp I realize the lies that have been told about me and how I do not have to live under that shroud of resentment, anger, and guilt anymore.
It is the best four days you could invest on the rest of your life. Invest in yourself today.
The bootcamp was amazing for my wife and I. We have been communication has been better than ever. I'm so excited about our new start. I have a wonderful wife and feel more stable than ever with her. I am in this thing forever.
I am so thankful for what the bootcamp did for me. We may be moving to the Galveston area soon. I will be signing up for a trainer and giving back what i recieved.
Vicki - Dallas, TX
The Marriage Seminar Boot Camp was the greatest experience of my life! It allowed me to let go of so many things from the past. I know that I am a better person due to this experience. I know that my marriage will be so much stronger because of this weekend! Thanks to all of you at Life Enrichment Boot Camp, you have helped me enrich my life in ways I did not think were possible!

It gave me self acceptance & learning to trust God, others and myself.
Lonnie _ Pearland, TX
My husband and I are thrilled with the outcome of the Marriage Retreat Bootcamp. We have been able to take what we learned and apply it to our lives. It's only been two weeks and there is a dramatic change in our lives already. Four months ago, I was ready to take my children and leave my husband but the Lord sent us to the Marriage Bootcamp to learn how to love and respect each other. Jim and David were awesome!
Chase - Atlanta, Ga
I came into this program with many strong holds that have been keeping me from seeing the real me. I learned alot about myself and how I was in a deep depression,no self confidence and didn't even care if I were to die. The program helped me realize that I'm strong capable and a wise young man. I really am. Being the youngest man in there at eighteen years old it was really hard for me but I gave it 110% and came out as a better and new person.
Tina - Atlanta
If you still carry the pain caused by others who have hurt you, even though you have forgiven them time after time, Boot Camp Is For You! After more than 2 yrs., I am free from that pain and feel such a lightness in my heart. Thank you Jim, David and staff for blessing me Real Good!!
Olga - Milam, Texas
At the Marriage Boot Camp I was able to forgave the person that I thought I would never be able to forgive. Because I did not know how to do it step by step. And...It feels great!, I feel free, full of love and serenity. I was used to live with worry and some resentment towards this person because of his actions. I can't belive how different I see him now. I feel compassion, even love and understanding. I see all people around me with acceptance and some love. And guess what?, It feels great!!!
The most important I learned in the camp was to LOVE MYSELF. The Boot Camp is the best gift I've ever received from a friend.
Judy - Winnipeg
The Life Enrichment Boot Camp gave me a sense of freedom from the pain and anger I was holding inside. My self worth was restored.
Jim - Dallas, TX
The Life Enrichment Boot Camp lifted a burden I have carried for years. It set me free to seek God's plan for me.
Marcus &Chamanthi, Mesquite, TX
The Marriage Boot Camp was the hardest thing we had ever been through. God broke through our barriers, defended our marriage with love, truth and compassion uniting our hearts and spirits.
Donna - Winnipeg
The marriage conference for me made me realize that I needed to take care of me. Taking care of me will help me to become the whole person God intended me to become.
Nancy, Houston, Texas
I?m glad that my fiancé and I went through the Life Enrichment Boot Camp before getting married as it helped up define who we are, each as a single person. With that definition, the strong love that we already felt for each other has grown into this unstoppable desire and passion for one another. A love that I never knew was possible. I learned that I cannot truly love someone else until I am able to love myself. The program helped me safely face my past and the pain left from it. With that, I was able to forgive and move on to a happier me. They gave me the tools that I needed to repair my life without doing it for me. I?ve got the courage to push forward and take control of my life. If I didn?t have the Boot Camp, I don?t believe that I would have ever felt the way that I do right now! Seriously, it?s like I?ve got the same freedom that I felt when I got the keys to my very first car. I?ve realized that I am a strong and powerful woman, who is in control of my life.
Thank you Jeani and Cliff and to all of the trainers for helping me save myself!

The marriage seminar experience confirmed my beliefs and gave me more confidence and hope.
Donna - Houston, TX
This has helped my self esteem and self worth 100%. I would recommend the Marriage Boot Camp to anyone who is struggling with depression, self worth, self esteem and forgiveness. It has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. The Trainers are wonderful and so helpful. I never do anything for me and I decided I was going to give myself this Life Enrichemtn Boot Camp as a gift. I am totally, completely a changed woman.
Going to boot camp caused me anxiety and trepidation. Would I be able do what it took to really get something out of it?
By the time it was all done though, I really feel that I was able to dig into stuff regarding myself I never have before, forgive myself and others, and come out noble and joyful.
God worked in me at this event more than any other.
Huey - Atlanta
It freed me of a lot of guilt I was carring in my heart for a long time. I know that God has freed me. I now have joy in my heart.

My marriage was totally over. Ten months after losing our only child, my husband of 8 years began cheating. When I learned of this, I tried to reconcile, but he left me anyway. After seventeen months of waiting on him to reconsider, & 2 months after I filed for divorce, as a last ditch effort, we decided to give Boot camp a try. When we got back, I let my divorce attorney go, & we are planning to renew our wedding vows! We recommend all couples attend Marriage Boot Camp. We know if we had earlier, we could've prevented most of the obstacles we've been through. The staff is a group of angels, God bless them!
My husband and I attended the Marriage boot camp in January of 2013 after being given a referral from a friend. This friend told me how much of an amazing difference this program had made not only in her marriage but in her life. The week before the program I just wanted to pack and leave our marriage. The pain that I experienced on a daily bases was too much to handle. I am now aware that I just wanted everything over; my marriage, my life, and the daily pain. On the first day I started crying on the drive to the program and continued to cry the entire first day, and was shocked to see that I was not alone. Everyone there was in similar daily pain just like me. The first day brought the realization that this was going to take 100% of my entire physical, mental, and emotional strength to get through to Saturday. The first day also brought the realization that everyone in that room was committed to helping us heal , and that gave all of us the strength to push forward. Over the course of the next three days and through numerous drills I became aware of the real problem in my life and our marriage. I went through a complete transformation that started with;
“I have never talked about this and I’m not going to do it now”
To: YELLING ABOUT IT;
To: repeatedly talking about it;
To: talking about it in front of over 100 people;
To: letting it go for the first time in 40 years;
To: today telling anyone who will listen.
There is absolutely no set of circumstances that I can imagine occurring anywhere else that could duplicate what happened in that room on January 24, 2013. The love, respect, trust, caring, and forgiveness, that happened in that room not only changed me forever but also changed everyone involved. That day will remain as the single most important day of my life for the simple reason that without it I did not have a life. The past pain and trauma I had experienced had left me with a complete inability to trust and love not only myself but anyone else, including my husband and our four children. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that God led us there to heal our pain and help us accomplish what we were put here to do. There are so many people that carry pain around on a daily basis and if any of us can do or say anything to can help change their lives –we should.
As a result of the Marriage Boot Camp I can actually SEE my husband now. His face, I am seeing for the first time ever. I no longer see my fathers face when I look at him. I’m forever blessed to see the beauty in everything he does and I realize now how much I have never really SEEN him before. I haven’t had a nightmare in weeks and I’m not as afraid to be home alone. All of the hatred, bitterness, and paralyzing fear, which I have carried for 40 years, is now gone. When I wake up in the morning I wake up with hope, happiness and a new found respect for Gods plan that is now obvious to me.
Seeing the unimaginable change in everyone over the course of four days is nothing short of miraculous. God serves to remind us that he is with us as we watch the group participant’s facial features change, watch the glow coming from their eyes and the smile that seems to have no limitations.
David Bishop, Dana Toney, Jim Carroll and all of the directors and trainers at Boot Camp are fulfilling Gods plan, and my life as well as the life of future generations of our family has been forever changed because of the willingness to carry out that plan. Special thanks to Mandy (one of my trainers) you walked me right through it and I love you always. Special thanks to David Bishop for knowing exactly what to say and do to help me release this trauma. I love you always.
God Bless and Keep all of you

The Life Enrichment Boot Camp taught me to forgive perceived wrongs and to tear down walls that I had built to insulate myself from pain. I learned that while I was protecting myself from pain, I couldn't accept or show love.
Debrah - Dallas, TX
I am amazed at free I feel. I received the Lord at a very young age, but always thought something was missing. My prayer for 2006 was that I would learn how to fly like an eagle. Life Enrichment Boot Camp showed me by forgiving myself and others I could fly. My friends at church on Sunday could see the difference in my eyes I was told. Thank you for everything.
I was really amazed how this boot camp helped my marriage. My husband and i had some struggles in our marriage and we had been attending counseling prior to our trip to the boot camp. We thought were doing all the "right things" already, but thought boot camp would teach a little extra. I was blown away on their techniques and how they help you discover why you do the things you do that can cause issues in your relationships. I would completely recommend this and or the life enrichment for everyone because it helps you become a better person with a lot of new understanding in your life and for a happy life.

The Marriage Boot Camp made me realize I was worthy of love. I realized that it's ok to be me, no more no less.
James - Allen, Texas
The Marriage Boot Camp opened my eyes to my own faults and iniquities. I thought my marriage was finished. My wife and I made a promise to give it one last try. Our pastor gave us the tickets and we went. Not only has this experience brought me closer to my wife, but closer to myself and God. My wife and I are at a new level of love.

My husband and I attended the marriage boot camp and the life enrichment boot camp with very low expectations. We had tried everything and this was our last resort. Through the games and drills, we were able to deal with individual baggage, some of which we didn't even know we had. Since we have dealt with those issues, we have been able to concentrate on our marriage and use the techniques that we learned to improve our relationship. What a blessing! I highly recommend these programs to EVERYONE. Don't spend another day in pain or struggling with issues alone. Enroll now and LIVE life!
Absolutely an amazing experience at the boot camp! My wife and I feel so in touch and in love with one another again, it's like we are still dating after 14 years of marriage. We found a new respect for one another and a way to work out our problems through conflict management. More so how to forgive for myself so that I won't have the extra baggage. I want to thank the whole staff at the camp for this amazing experience! Last but certainly not least our Marriage Boot Camp Friends! 4 long days and our group was awesome! Much love goes out to you all!

The Boot Camp seminar affirmed good things in my life and helped me discover and deal with some negatives that have impacted my life. My life is now more balanced and in correct perspective with myself, God and others.
David, Rogers AR
The marriage boot camp was miraculous. It transormed my life, saved my marriage and will forever change who I am as a person. I am more equipped to resolve conflict, show love, receive love and make a greater difference in my life and the lives of those around me. The relationships formed during the camp will forever enrich my life with such great support and love - these are my closest friends and I love them and treasure dearly.
I just wanted to write you and thank you and everyone at the show for helping us. Especially Dr. Phil for sending us to the Marriage Boot Camp! It was obvious with 11 marriages that I had to work on something but Dr. Phil said something that hit me really hard. We both had unresolved issues from our past that would have killed our relationship. I will never as long as I live forget the moment when I forgave God and myself. Since I was a very little girl I have always missed "My Husband". That is how I explained it to people my whole life. That day with Jim and Elizabeth the churning stopped, the loneliness stopped, and I could hear God's answers more clearly.
Shelley - Atlanta, GA
The marriage workshop was an enlightening experience. It gave me self-confidence and hope for a better future.
DJ, Larue, TX
The Life Enrichment and Marriage Boot Camp helped me to allow God to tear down my walls, allow me to trust, and to love myself just as I am. It brought my marriage to life and oneness. I have a best friend in my husband now, and look forward to living each day to its fullest.
